Pembroke Bay

Pembroke Bay - Guernsey
© Debra Townsend

Pembroke Bay offers visitors a large, seemingly unbroken stretch of sand, the longest in Guernsey, on which to relax. Situated at the northernmost point of the island, the turquoise waters off the coast are ideal for a wide variety of watersports and leisure activities.

Windsurfing, sailing, surfing, kayaking and even fishing are all popular pastimes here. Additionally, the gentle slope of the sand into the water makes it a perfect beach for swimming and paddling. Although dogs are banned in the warmer Summer months, this is a very popular beach for dog walkers from October until May 1st.

Pembroke Bay’s location on the 14 km coastal path that leads from Beaucette to Grand Rocques, as well as its proximity to the popular golf course nearby, means that this beach is very popular, especially in the high season. However there are plenty of nearby amenities and ample parking to meet the need.
